Thanks for the feed back. I go through the same type of inspections at a few of our lakes here. When we yaked at fallen leaf lake in Tahoe area they power washed them with hot water before we wete allowed to put in. But most of the time they just check to be sure they are bone dry. Thanks again everyone for the great feed back.

In NY they are getting strict on moving firewood. The current law is no more than 50 miles from origin and even then you are supposed to carry a form filled out with the info of where it came from and where its going and how much you have.

In MI you can't move firewood across a county line. They are trying to prevent the spread of the emerald ash borer.

I have some generic ladder racks which I use and then I mounted my Thule load system with Kayak saddles to secure them

Norty..where ya heading and whats the specs on those yaks?

Heres one of mine (D10 rec yak) on the Envoy and the other is a Ocean Kayak SOT Scrambler that we bring to the beach alot. I just installed a rack on my K5 to carry the yaks around on so no more carring them around sticking out the back window. I since got rid of the Malone carrier on the Envoy (wasnt too happy with the quality)

We are going to Rock Crusher Canyon RV Resort in Crystal River, Fl. The kayaks are both Ocean Kayak sit on tops. Wife's is a Venus 10', Mine is a Caper 11'. We have hauled them everywhere for 8 years.

We go to Crystal river every Feb/Mar to paddle with the Manatees and for the crystal clear spring fed rivers like the Homosassa, the Silver River and the Rainbow river. All within a 30 minute drive.

Can anyone tell me how sturdy the Thule roof rack system is? I have two 14' kayaks that I used to carry with a ladder rack in the bed of my old truck. When I bought my F150 crew cab, I purchased a hard cover for the bed and haven't been able to take them camping since. I'm considering buying the Thule racks like Snake has pictured above, but I'm concerned about stability. Would it hold them ok? And, would I have to tie down the front and back of the kayaks? I would hate to see rope flapping in front of me the entire time I'm driving!
